Svendsdatter Pullover

Hi everyone! Svendsdatter was designed for a Knitting and Yoga Adventures Retreat in Quechee, Vermont. Thank you North Light Fibers for the yarn support. Water Street is a gorgeous yarn to knit with. Thank you Quechee Inn for the fabulous stay and food. This sweater will always remind me of all my new friends that I met in Vermont!!!

Svendsdatter is a top-down yoke sweater with seamless construction. It is a three-color design but involves mostly two-color knitting with just a few rows where three colors are knit at once. Try on your Svendsdatter as you go so you tailor fit the yoke length and then the length of your body and sleeves.
